Another awesome Zindy tube called SASSY RED which you can buy here
FTU Kit by Gothic Inspirations called The Darkest Night
Filters : Eye Candy Gradient Glow and Xero Porcelain
Fonts used : Dusty Rose and Century Gothic.

Open a 650 x 650 transparent image.
Open up your tube - leave to one side for now.
Open your kit and choose element MESH - copy and paste as new layer, resize by 66%. Move this up and to the right. Duplicate layer, Mirror, Flip - merge layer down.
Choose your preset tool and select Circle/Elipse - Choose White as your background color.
Draw out a large circle. Apply Effects/Texture/Blinds with the following setting
Width 3 Opacity 29 Color Black, Light from top left

Now choose a color from your tube - and draw out a smaller circle - move to the left.
Paste close up onto the circle - delete any overhang
(You should know how to do this by now)
Adjust Opacity to desired strength.
Now apply Xero Porcelain with default settings - adjusting the BLUE to 76
Move back to your circle now and add a Gradient Glow if desired. (Fat/White and then Color/Medium)

Back to your Preset Shape and choose a heart shape - draw out a small heart in your color of choice, then draw out a few more hearts scattered over the right hand side of the large White circle shape. Don't make them all the same size - and keep a scattered effect with them. Convert to Raster Layer, apply a drop shadow, and Xero Porcelain if desired.

Copy and paste your tube - use my tag for reference.
Resize by 85% - Adjust Sharpness.

Now - start adding your elements
(Adjust the element color to match your tube - I used HUE 225 SATURATION 80)
Moon - Copy/Paste, resize by 66% - move this layer down below your circle shapes - and to the left.
Lamp - copy/paste, resize by 33% - move to the right.
Fern - copy/paste, resize by 66%, and move this down behind your tube.
Rose - copy/paste, resize by 33% - move to right of your tube, duplicate and mirror the rose.
Scatter - copy/paste, resize by 66% - place where you like on the tag.
Beads - copy/paste, resize by 66% and place this so it sits along the bottom of your tube.
Sparkles - copy and paste. This is your top layer now - place as desired.

Now choose a color to match your tag, and the Dusty Rose Font
Type out WHERE IS LOVE? - and place at the bottom of your tag.
Add any desired effect.

Choose Century Gothic Font - and type out your name, in size 16, repeating 4 or 5 times.
Add a Gradient Glow.
